There is an old saying that an engineer describes every idea with a drawing. With the advances in computer technology and drawing software, it has never been easier, or more important, to learn computer aided design. To be effective, however, a drawing must accurately convey your intended meaning and that requires more than just knowing how to use software. This book provides you with a clear presentation of the theory of engineering graphics and the use of AutoCAD 2018 as they pertain to civil engineering applications. This combination of theory and its practical application will give you the knowledge and skills necessary to create designs that are accurate and easily understood by others. Each chapter starts with a bulleted list of chapter objectives followed by an introduction. This provides you with a general overview of the material that will be covered in the chapter. The contents of each chapter are organized into well-defined sections that contain step-by-step instructions and illustrations to help you learn to use the various AutoCAD commands. More importantly, you will also learn how and why you would use these tools in real world projects. This book has been categorized and ordered into eleven parts: Introduction to AutoCAD 2018 ribbon interface (1-7)Dimensioning and tolerancing using AutoCAD 2018 (8-9)Use of AutoCAD in land survey data plotting (10-11)The use of AutoCAD in hydrology (12-13)Transportation engineering and AutoCAD (14-15)AutoCAD and architecture technology (16-18)Introduction to working drawings (19)Plotting from AutoCAD (20)Suggested drawing problems (21-22)BibliographyIndex
